How do I import an MP3 (or other audio) file from my computer, and then set it as a ringer option?
Plug your phone into the usb port on your computer.
When you see the USB icom in the top left corner, pull it down, you will see "USB connected" Tap on that and then tapon "mount" you can now access your phone as a removable disk drive and drag your music files onto the phone.
After you have you songs , when the one you want is playing, bring up the options menu and touch "use as ringtone" and that song will be your ringtone.
Hey, do we have to format the disks before we use them via this mounting process?
no, should be ready from the store
but it is smarter to create separate folders for things, like music, ringtones, pics, etc... right?
I usually organize in some manner; whatever works for you.
can each contact have a different ringtone out of the box? Or do you need an app for that?
Easy to change individula ringtones
Out of the box, each contact has the same ringtone. To change the ringtone for an individual contact:
1. Start Contacts
2. Select the contact to change
3. Tap on menu, options
4. Tap on ringtone
5. Select ringtone
6. Tap OK
No additional app is needed to change ringtones.
Best of luck,
Try Ring Droid which is a very easy to use free app. You can select only part of a song to use as a ringtone and/or notification. This has worked so far with any song I have imported to my phone.
Can you set a specific ringtone to a specific caller in from your contacts?
Sure can. Do the same as stated above on mounting the removable disk, but this time make a folder called "ringtones" (this also works for "notifications" and "alarms") and drop whatever supported music file type you want there. Now when you go to the contact, pull up the menu, and select options, your ringtones will be in the list to choose from.
I'd actually like to set a specific ringer for my messages separate from other multimedia notifications... but I'm not seeing how that can be done... anyone?
